Topic: Full Background Image Resolution Very "Bitmap-ie" on Small Viewports

surface2air free asked 6 years ago

Hi Support, I am working from a Full Background Image template for a web page, and in my online testing the image looks fine across viewport, device and screen size, but when I do real-world testing on my iPhone 7 (iOS 11), the background image I am using loses its resolution and becomes very "bitmap-ie" and overly pixelated. The image clarity is completely lost. How can I correct this? My original image size for the background image is: 985 x 750 px (72 dpi) Here's my page (test in production): Here's how it looks in Quirktools on smaller viewports: But compare on an actual smartphone to see the difference. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you! Eric Seattle, Washington

Hi, It looks fine on my Android. You could try this link (I have used it before): Alternatively have you tried using MDB's Parallax effect found here: It will also allow the Parallax effect to work on Mobiles :) Hope that helps...

Hi Ollie, Thanks, yes, the issue has to do with the background property set to "fixed." When that's removed from the CSS, the image displays perfectly now across all viewports and device size. Great tip! Thanks, Eric
